Speaking to ITV News, the Royal Mail said:
We can confirm that a small number of postboxes in the Tooting area were sealed after a set of collection keys went missing.
The boxes were cleared of mail before they were sealed so no items were left inside them.
Royal Mail apologises to its customers in Tooting for any inconvenience this may have caused.
We are working to change the locks and reopen the boxes as quickly as possible. In the meantime, customers can use other postboxes in the area or of course drop their mail off at any Post Office branch.
@tootingbaby Hi, we are aware of what's happened & we will be reopening the boxes ASAP. Sorry for any inconvenience.
@tootingbaby Hi, we learnt that the boxes were all emptied before being sealed & the locks are due to be replaced. Our colleagues are...
@tootingbaby chasing this with our engineering division now. We don't yet have an estimated completion date.

A man's been jailed after being caught carrying a stun gun, disguised as a mobile phone, at Old Street tube station.
Christopher Broome, 36, of Welham Road in Tooting, also pleaded guilty to possessing a lock knife with a 3.5 inch blade.
He's been sentenced to five years in prison for the stun gun, with a nine month term for the lock knife to run concurrently.
Inspector Brian Drayson from British Transport Police said: “Thanks to the quick actions of the officer who was on patrol at Old Street station, Broome was caught and prosecuted.
“The detection of the stun gun weapon was a particularly good spot and may have been easily missed due to its realistic appearance as a mobile phone.
“I hope Broome’s sentence sends a clear message that BTP takes incidents like this very seriously and anyone caught carrying a weapon on the railway network will be arrested and prosecuted.”
